It’s been awhile since I geeked out with some LEGO paraphernalia so without further ado, I bring you a guy who spent nine months building a scale model of the Invisible Hand, General Grievous’ flagship from Star Wars Episode III (Return of the Revenge of The Send In The Clones… or as I like to call it… Is that whiny bitch Anakin dead yet?) The last pic in the series, way down at the bottom will give you a sense of scale.
I’m impressed… but then again I geek out easily.
Speaking of geeking out, for those of you with Trek addiction, here’s a teaser for the new Trek film. When I say TEASER, I mean it. It shows nothing. I’m always baffled at why studios release such drivel. I mean I can understand the whole “whet their appetite” mentality, but honestly, if you’re going to show me something to whet my appetite, show me something more than a bunch of welders making a ship that we already know what it looks like. Hell! It’s not that good looking of a ship to begin with. Show us some actors actually acting in character, some scantily clad alien women for Kirk to score with and possibly some shit blowing up and maybe, just maybe I’ll be appeased.
Meh, what do I know. I’m not a huge Trek fan to begin with. I think the only reason I’m going to watch this is because it has Simon Pegg as Scotty and John Cho as Sulu. I have images of the control room getting turned into one big hotbox and the engine room as a dingy pub. In my mind it’ll be great, but as we’ve already determined, I’m easily amused.
Anyway, I believe that’s all she wrote for tonight.
